If you've been bad then you better watch out as tonight is KRAMPUSNACHTand the Krampus might come and get you!
In this country we tell children they better be good or Father Christmas won't bring them any presents.......in some European countries they go one step further and tell them that not only will they get no presents but that the Krampus will come and get them......he is St Nicks demonic side-kick!
December 6th is the Feast of St Nicholas and on the evening of December 5th Krampus is said to roam the streets looking for bad children.........talk about scaring your kids into good behaviour!!
I love traditions based in folklore.......and of course if it's slightly on the dark side then all the better.....so this is right up my street!
So, don't have nightmares this KRAMPUSNACHT!!
If you find this fascinating then you might find this book interesting:)
